Peninsula Community Supporting Youth Music at Special Event
Ocean Beach Winery Partners With Local Music Boosters
San Diego CA – November 2, 2021– Wine tasting, food samples from local restaurants and live student music performances will be featured at this special event hosted at The Thursday Club on Point Loma.
Tuesday, November 16, 2021, is your chance to support Point Loma school music programs.
Four years ago, local winemaker Keith Rolle of Gianni Buonomo Vintners created a single barrel of wine that he named the OB BLEND. He vowed to donate half of that barrel to help raise funds for youth music programs on the Peninsula. The wine has been bottled and is now ready to release.
Karla Lapic from the Point Loma HS Music Boosters brainstormed with Rolle to come up with an event that would showcase his wine and raise much need money for student music programs. “Our local music programs are woefully underfunded. This collaboration is a total community effort to benefit our local students’ music programs,” Lapic said. “100% of the proceeds and donations for this event directly benefit Orchestra and Choral programs at Correia Middle School and Point Loma High School.“
The Ocean Beach/Point Loma community has been intimately involved in developing this project. The wine was made on Newport Avenue at Gianni Buonomo Vintners. Next door to the winery is Target and they generously volunteered use of their parking lot for a day so a mobile bottling unit could come to bottle the wine. The label was designed by Point Loma Heights artist Karen Tarlton. The label layout and federal submission to the TTB for approval was done by Aaron Null of Vervor Design. The Thursday Club on Santa Barbara Street is providing the event venue.
Lapic adds, “This event is a great opportunity for our community to give back and support student music on the Peninsula.”
